Just when we think the world is taking a step forward toward positive change, ultraconservative fundamentalism is rearing its ugly head in an effort to take us two steps backward. The foundation of the European Union is cracking after elections have placed reactionaries back into office, In the USA, the Supreme Court has given more power to corporations and religious fundamentalists while disempowering voters and challenging women’s rights. In Israel and Gaza, the rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air have driven Arabs and Israelis back into the darkness of their bomb shelters. But the fear and intimidation have not extinguished the Light of Hope.
I am sharing the following message we received from one of our UPLIFT family members in Israel where we recently planted seeds of change by bringing Palestinians and Israelis together in a festival of Love and New Science. Attached is my response. Light in the Darkness!
With Love for You and Our World,
Subject: Missiles on Israel – Uplift is the way. Love is the only reality
Sending this mail just to share, gain some strength and thrive on some good, refreshing UPLIFT energy: Crazy days here in Israel. Three Alarm sirens just tonight, rushing the kids to shelter every time – and it only 10:30pm. Many more to come tonight….
Missiles in the air, counter missiles blowing them up in the sky in load bangs – all above our homes. It is war time again in the holy land – such stupidity. Just a few hours ago I was Skyping with Chip Richards. Two friends from two corners of the earth speaking about Uplift. About making this place a garden of love. Such joy! At this time I just wanted to tell you all: this old world of fear and battle is over. It is dead. No outcome of battle can create value, real peace and equality. War can bear no real fruit. The only point of war is to emphasize separation, fear and point out the artificial differences among us. But it is all false. Our hearts are the same. Our spirit is one. As we all learned – love is the only relevant method and in reality separation does not exist. Especially tonight I wanted to focus my energy on what really matters and send you all a huge virtual hug and remind us all: Heaven is right here, right now.
The Uplift circle of love is alive and well.
Love is the only truth.
We pray that the Divine Light of Love protect you and keep you, your family, your friends and your communities safe in this time of unconscious strife. Rest assured that “crisis ignites evolution!” In the midst of this ignominious trauma, people become awakened to seek a new truth and are moved to take action. Your heartfelt thoughts and actions are the powerful seeds of change needed to help others move beyond the present and forge a new path toward peace and reconciliation. As we are painfully aware, governments do not make change … we do.
We hold you in our hearts with all the Love that we all are. You are with us and we are with you day and night. We are so grateful to be here on Earth with you at this exact time to experience Love with you as we birth a new Humanity.
May you be safe and nourished by the Love within you and all around you.
Margaret and Bruce
